Welcome to Lion’s Roar Dharma Center

In the Tradition of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Lion’s Roar programs are designed to provide personally tailored teachings for the Western student within a global community. Buddhist teachings at Lion’s Roar are especially designed for people with daily work, school and family commitments. Whether you are interested in simple calm-abiding meditation or more advanced Buddhist teachings there is a class just for you. It’s okay to just drop in. No need to be a member or a buddhist to participate. Come as you are and show up!

Building a Sacred Altar!

We are excited to announce we have starting the construction of
Do Nga Dargey’s formal Altar area

An Altar is meant to inspire our meditation practice, support our Buddha-nature and help us wake up faster!
When we look to the Altar, there is a spontaneous sense of openness and freedom. We want to give people the experience of colorful and energetic manifestation of awareness.

Our goal in the next month is to raise $4,000!

We need and appreciate the support from those who share Lion’s Roar’s vision
of creating an enlightened community.

Message from Lama Jinpa – Building a Sacred Altar!

“Creating a sacred Altar is a very exciting endeavor; one that we hope will inspire you to Donate Now.”
